Commit to your fitness fun goals by registering now for the 10th annual Accra International Marathon (AIM), a leisure running/walking event that attracts participants from all over the world. AIM Day falls on 30 October this year, so there’s plenty of time for beginners to train for the shorter distances and for experienced runners to increase their distance or pace.
Early registration helps many people to focus on their training. Plus, you can defer your registration to a future event if that becomes necessary.
Early registrations also help to order supplies in the right sizes and quantities, so in addition to the discount, all those registering by 31st May will get a nice bonus item in their goody bag.
We’ve already got a great mix of participants of various backgrounds, professions, and nationalities for socializing, networking and forming new friendships.
The race is on to determine the best represented nationality this year. So far, Nigeria and the UK are tied for first place with the U.S., usually the early leader, in second position. Anyone care to predict which foreign country will emerge the leader with most nationals participating? There will be nice prizes for the first 3 people to predict correctly.
What shall we do to recognize the top 3 represented foreign countries? Please help us out with some fun ideas. More prizes for the first to come up with suggestions that are adopted.
We AIM to make fitness fun to be sure, but we also AIM to overcome some of the many challenges facing our communities and societies. Last year, we raised over $10,000 in our AIMing to Care campaign for charities in the Ebola-affected countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, as well as for the Ghana Planetarium and Science Centre. Another effort that benefited from funds raised is one being led by the AIM’s very first volunteer doctors. We will bring you more information on their initiative in a future article.
We hope you will AIM with us to support this year’s AIM Charity Partners or the cause dearest to your heart. Please visit us at www.aimghana.com to register and to let us know what you will be AIMing for.
The vision of AIM is to attract national and international participants to a world-class marathon running and walking event in the nation's capital and to be a fundraising vehicle in support of The Longevity Project (the Project). The mission of the Project is to increase the life expectancy and quality of life of Ghanaians. The prevailing life expectancy is under 65 years.
